complete verse (Colossians 3:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of Colossians 3:11:

  • Uma: “So, since he has made us new people, we no longer make distinction between Yahudi people and people who are not Yahudi, because in the sight of God people who are circumcised and people who are not circumcised are just the same. He does not look-at-appearance whether a person is schooled or not schooled, nobleman or slave. Kristus is the main-thing of all, and he is the one who dwells-in-us all.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “When/if all are equally new then there is no longer any difference between Yahudi and not Yahudi, the ones who have been circumcised and the ones who are not circumcised, the ones who have learning and the ones who have no learning, the servant and the master. There is no difference between them, because in-the-same-way/equally Almasi lives in their livers and Almasi is the only one who is great to them.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Because of this, we (incl.) whom He has made into new people, we do not favor either Jews or people who aren’t Jews because to God, those who are circumcised and those who are not circumcised are just the same. Just the same to Him are those who studied and those who have not studied; servant and the master; to us (incl.) who are new people, the only one who is high is Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because of this that God has done, there is no distinction between all the people whom he has made-new. Whether Jew or Gentile, whether circumcised or not circumcised, whether stranger and savage/headhunter, and whether slave or not slave, they are all the same in God’s estimation/view, because it is Cristo alone who is important/esteemed, and he is in all who have-believed.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “In this new life of ours there is now no distinction, Jews or not Jews, circumcised or not circumcised, those from other lands who have different languages and ways, fierce people who don’t have any education at all, slaves and those who are not slaves. It is not important what the nationality (lit: blood) of a person is or what their circumstances are. All that is important is Cristo, if we believe/obey him or not. He is superior to all and he indwells all who are trusting and believing in him.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now, it is not important whether one is a Jew or is not a Jew, where one has been marked or not, whether one is from far away or whether a person is not educated, whether one is under a boss or not. That which is of the greatest importance is that one believes in Christ. Because Christ is he who walks with all the people who believe in him.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
